Development Benefits of Collier County’s Qualified Opportunity Zones

June 24 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Collier County offers five Opportunity Zones: Golden Gate, Naples Manor, Immokalee and two areas surrounding Immokalee.

The incentive is a deferral, reduction and potential elimination of certain federal capital-gains taxes. Investing in an Opportunity Zone can offer a permanent exclusion from taxable income of capital gains from the sale or exchange of an investment in an Opportunity Fund if the investment is held for at least 10 years.

The speakers will be: Christy Cardillo, partner at Carr, Riggs & Ingram, and Naples attorney Nabil Joseph, of Conrad Wilkomm PA.

Jace Kentner, director of the Collier County Office of Business & Economic Development, will then provide an overview of Collier County’s five Opportunity Zones.

Following that, an expert panel will discuss Collier County Opportunity Zones, their benefits and take questions from the audience. Panel members will be: Kentner; Mark Strain, chairman of the Collier County Planning Commission; Mike Bosi, Collier County zoning director; and Jamie French, deputy department head of the Collier County Growth Management Department.

Who should attend? Economic development professionals, real estate developers/brokers, potential investors, small business owners and business incubator professionals.
